Landmark animal extinctions and the Delectation achievement - How to get it (by editing)
As it stands it is impossible to get the Delectation achievement (polish off all landmark species) because the triggers for extinction don't work properly. Thanks to a response from Scarabaeus (in this thread http://steamcommunity.com/app/80200/discussions/0/846959998085041049/
) I've found a way to trigger it by editing the lua files.
In the 100_base lua file search for =42. This can be found at ...\Fate of the world\share\fotw\policies. This number refers to the 42 species and should be changed into =1 Probably only the third one you find is relevant, but it can't hurt to replace them all. After the third 42 is the following line:
I'm not actually sure what it says but the =12 should also be replaced with =1.
After saving the file start up FotW and play until you get your first extinction (probably either the black rhino or the walrus). This is easiest in the Doctor Apocalypse scenario and may be only possible to achieve here, as the code refers to it at some point. As soon as you cause the first extinction the achievement should trigger.
Obviously this doesn't fix the game but at least it allows you to get all achievements.
